Interventional procedures are a sub-specialty of radiology which use minimally invasive image-guided procedures to diagnose and treat diseases in nearly every organ system. Our highly trained Radiologists perform these procedures in our clinics across Central Queensland. These types of procedures are beneficial as they have less risk, less pain and less recovery time in comparison to open surgery. The procedures usually involve either the injection of medication or the removal of tissue, such as biopsies.
Injections can be performed under X-Ray, CT or Ultrasound guidance, however, the choice will depend on the type of condition being treated. A biopsy is the removal of tissue for further analysis by a pathology laboratory and is undertaken to assist and support results from previous diagnostic imaging.
Preparation will depend on the type of procedure, but our friendly booking staff will advise you when you book your appointment. Please be sure to bring along any previous x-rays, CT scans, ultrasound or MRI examinations which you may have available. They provide valuable additional information to the attending Radiologist performing your procedure. All imaging will be returned to you.
At the time of the procedure on the day, our healthcare team will discuss the detail of what will happen during the procedure.
The cost of the procedure will depend on a number of factors which will be clarified when you make your booking or arriving at the practice.
The results will be sent to your referring doctor and you will get a copy of the report with your images.
